This summer, we are planning four great activities for Pack 24 cub scouts and their families. More details will be provided as we get closer to these dates, but make a note of them on your calendars now.
- June 24: Bike Hike. We’ll continue our tradition of hitting a forest preserve trail for a long bike ride and serve some refreshments to re-energize our scouts after the trip. Bear leader Chris Pacourek will coordinate this event.
- July 4: Parade & Lemonade Stand. Our scouts serve as the color guard at the beginning of Riverside’s Independence Day Parade. Our fresh-squeezed lemonade is a huge hit at the party afterwards in Guthrie Park. Thanks to both Karen and Mike Ryan for serving as co-chairpersons for this event. We’re looking for volunteers to help make this event as successful as it was last year, so if you’re to lend a hand, please click here to be a part of the committee.
- July 29: Water park outing. We’re going to check out Raging Waves water park in Yorkville for this year’s water park adventure and it sounds absolutely fabulous. Bear leader Jeff Lukas is coordinating this outing.
- August 19: Summer Picnic. Last year’s picnic involved water bottle rockets, a bounce house, and epic water balloon fight and, of course, some tasty grilling. Webelos leader Tim Ozga is making the arrangements.
Also mark September 7, 8 & 9 since just after school begins, we will be heading back to the Warren Dunes near Sawyer, MI for our fall camping trip.
Remember that the Pack meeting tonight (May 8th) is graduation, so bring a snack to share with your fellow scout families and also a box of cereal to support the ongoing RPC food drive.
